I just bought this off ebay. We could use it for the Emporer statue if the other one never arrives.

I haven't heard from Sarge in a while... I don't know for sure, but I believe that there could be someone close to him with a serious health issue, which might be why he hasn't been accessable for a while...   :(

So - I think that was a good idea to pick that up Phruby.

 :P

It would be kind of cool to have two of these standing on either side of the front gate.

Would you mind putting that on some kind of base, or painting it like Sarge's was?

Cause as is I think that it would just look a bit out of place.

As for the gold Epcot ball, there was a story about when Disney was planning a second theme park for Disneyland. It was going to be named Westcot and was going to have a giant golden version of Spaceship Earth. Some say it was going to house a version of the Living Seas. Harley's globe reminds me of preproduction pictures of this ball. Of course, Disney never built Westcot but gave us DCA instead.  :'(

Cool, I never knew that. I guess you learn something new every day as they say ;).

That's what I'm planning. I hope it arrives quickly.

I would agree - if it's not painted, it simply won't look right.

If you end up not painting it Phruby, I'd be interested in purchasing this from you and painting it for my collection.

Here is a picture of Westcot.

No one needs a giant Emporer standing in the middle of the town.  ;) He will be primed grey.

Id take it a step further and spray it with that stone fleck finish.
Most Satues are stone right? Make it look like stone. My 2 cents!

Yahoo, Perfect Paul, My dad is taking me to the post office on Saturday. I have one more spacer that just needs a new paint job on his arms, and torso. Maybe I'll stick that in..... If I can dig my paints out that is.:P
